Today is National Doughnut Day! It is actually one of two celebrated. The first being on the first Friday of every June. But, like bacon, the Doughnut is something so delicious that you have to celebrate it more than once a year. (Personally I celebrate bacon every day) Sure you can celebrate the easiest way, by going to a doughnut shop and buying one. But why not have the satisfaction of making your own delicious doughnuts! And delicious they are! These Cinnamon Raisin Doughnuts are spectacular in their sweet and doughy goodness. Glazed with a crackly finish, they burst with taste in your mouth. Make them with traditional cake and pastry flour or go gluten free with this recipe too!
A few things. I had bread machine yeast. It worked out perfectly fine with the bread machine yeast. I also don’t have a stand mixer … AHEM, YET… so I mixed these by hand. It is tiring work and I am not very ambidextrous. It still worked out. If you have a hand mixer with dough hooks, that would work as well. And lastly. These Cinnamon Raisin Doughnuts are best served still a little warm. A fantastic autumn recipe that the whole family, or the office will enjoy.
I have a great time cooking and making doughnuts to share with everyone is certainly up there in the fun department. Especially when someone bites into one that is still warm. The shell of the icing cracking and flaking off on their lips. They giggle cause it’s so messy, but it’s soooo good.
Happy National Doughnut Day everyone!
